A Road through the Mountains by Mike Jackobo

A colour infrared photo of a road through the mountains at Epirus, in western Greece. I was driving in this road in order to get to one of the unknown -and impressive- archaeological sites in Epirus, the ancient settlement of Orraon. This is a new road linking the villages in the area. The old one was on the path of the new motorway crossing the whole of western Greece.

By a miscalculation on my part I didn’t take the motorway to my destination. I kept driving, a bit disappointed at me, until I came to this straight portion with the mountains all over. I was an impressive view, so I pulled to the side and went out with my cameras. The infrared photo was the one I picked because it outlined the mountains better against the sky, thus resulting in a much more impressive photo.
